If we talk about past, Microsoft and SAP both have come up together as partners for many integrated projects and they are doing this again. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and SAP’s CEO Bill McDermott announced about their partnership. This time both of them is deploying each other’s cloud offerings but they are doing so internally. This time Microsoft and SAP will also jointly engineer and will go to the market with the main solution. They are also going to jointly support each other’s business services.
Before going deep about this particular partnership, I think it would be a good option to discuss a bit about both the enterprises. As almost all of you must have heard the names of these tech giants, but there will be many who don’t know about their various services and stuff like that. Microsoft is a bigger brand and people know about their services as well, and that is because we use most of them on a daily basis on our computer or laptops. But many of you don’t know about services that SAP provides. So it would be better to discuss both of them briefly before we go into the partnership.
Let’s first go with Microsoft
Microsoft is a US-based multinational company which deals in technology. It has its headquarters in Washington. It was founded in 1975. The founders of Microsoft are – the 2nd richest person in the world, The Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Microsoft Corporation is under development, manufacturing, licensing, supporting and selling of computer software, personal computers and services related to them. Microsoft Corporation is abbreviated as MS. As of now, the company is managed into three segments and they are – Productivity and Business Processes, Intelligent Cloud and More Personal Computing. Satya Nadella is the current CEO of the Microsoft Corporation.
Now let’s talk about SAP
SAP SE is a software company. It is a European multinational company. It was established in 1972 by Dietmar Hoop, Hasso Plattner, Hans – Werner Hector, Claus Wellenreuther and Klaus Tschira in Germany. It’s headquarter is situated in Walldorf in Germany. The SAP is into the making of enterprise software. The SAP enterprise software helps in the management of customer relationships and also helps in managing business operations.

SAP has its focus on 6 different industry sectors and they are – consumer industries, public services, process industries, service industries, discrete industries and financial services. Bill McDermott is the present CEO of SAP.
Now let’s talk about the partnership that these two big tech giants have just announced. Under this partnership, SAP’s privately managed cloud will also provide its services on Microsoft Azure and also Microsoft is going to deploy SAP S/4HANA on Azure to help in running its own internal finance processes. The SAP is also going to share its key internal business-critical system to the Microsoft’s Azure.
Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft said that – As the technology is getting advance and is developing day by day, every enterprise and personal want better products and services. All the enterprises want to provide best service to its customers and personals want to move to the platform where they can get services of their choice according to their needs and doing this is not easy for an organization. So by making such partnerships, we are not just benefiting our organizations but also providing and trying to fulfill the customer’s needs.
According to a research, enterprises need to pace up their speed with the digitalization to be in competition with other such enterprises. If you fail to gear it up soon then it will difficult for you to come up afterward. Also these days, either the enterprise or the personals, everyone wants the benefits of clouds and also wants it to be secure, as clouds are now more like to our personal space to save our data and Microsoft and SAP is trying to make it an easy path for you since a very long time.
SAP’s CEO Bill McDermott said that they are taking their partnership to the next level by making SAP S/4HANA run on the Microsoft Azure. As Microsoft and SAP, both are trusted companies and that’s why their partnership is making more customers and helping personals to fulfill their needs.
Microsoft and SAP both have agreed to run SAP S/4HANA to run on Microsoft Azure. For this, Microsoft is making some internal changes and then will deploy SAP S/4HANA finance solution on Azure. Microsoft is also planning to deploy SAP S/4HANA on Azure AI and Azure Analytics services. If this goes as per planning, this deployment will help in even more effective financial reporting and will also help in even more powerful decision making. SAP has plans to move approximately 12 business critical systems to Azure because of the flexibility Azure provides, because of the innovation that Azure platform has and because of the Azure’s optimal efficiencies.
Because of this partnership, the customers are getting as much as they can imagine of. It is not possible to get anything better than this. They are getting application management and product expertise from SAP and cloud from Microsoft Azure, which is the most trusted, global and intelligent cloud service.
